|Summary, etc.:||The suspense never rests when A Time to Kill's Jake Brigance fights the good fight once again. Often named an all-time favorite by John Grisham's legions of fans, the book that started it all gets a brand-new chapter. America's favorite storyteller returns to Ford County, Mississippi, where defense attorney Jake Brigance will have to fight for justice in a trial that could tear the small town of Clanton apart.|

Jake Brigance, the trial lawyer who appeared in Grisham's first novel, A Time to Kill (1989), makes his second appearance, trying to get a black woman, Lettie, the long-delayed justice for the loss of her family's land. Set in Clanton, Mississippi, the novel recalls the earlier book's characters, setting, and town prejudices. Beck is a master at the nuances of regional and racial southern accents. His range is wide, subtle, and wonderfully indicative of the variety of characters in the novel. He gives Jake a muted Mississippi accent that calls attention to his roots. The eight lawyers involved range from polite to downright racist, and Beck's range in verbally defining them is brilliant. Lettie herself comes across as stunned and overwhelmed, and Beck's reading of her never lets the listener forget that she is only human. While this is not the cliff-hanger that A Time to Kill was, it shows that Jake is still on his game and prepared to try to gain justice for the people of Clanton. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
